TEAR TROUGH REJUVENATION TREATMENT BY DR. ZUCKERMAN IN NEW YORK CITY


Dr. Zuckerman can help you reduce dark circles under the eyes, regardless of the age of the patient, with dermal filler injections. Done correctly, it beautifully eases the transition from the lower eyelid into the cheek, eliminating shadow and the appearance of hollowness. Filler in this area is also long lasting: up to 1 year. For this sensitive area, Dr. Zuckerman uses Restylane-L ®, a Hyaluronic Acid filler with lidocaine, which is FDA-approved for treating the under eye area. It is also the lease hydrophilic (absorbs the least amount of water) of Hyaluronic Acid fillers, and therefore minimizes swelling. Dr. Zuckerman injects deep into the tissues, near the bone, and can inject up to 1cc+ of filler per eye. This treatment helps a patient appear rested and refreshed both when the face is at rest and while smiling or otherwise facially animating.

Tear Trough Rejuvenation In Detail

Below Dr. Zuckerman outlines several key aspects of Tear Trough Rejuvenation including procedure time, preparation, cost, and more.

Recommended Treatment Regimen

Most patients require one treatment per year to maintain a continual effect.

Longevity

Treatment is visible immediately, but takes approximately one week to ten days to set in. It lasts up to one year. Results will vary depending on how much product Dr. Zuckerman injects and how quickly the patient metabolizes Hyaluronic Acid.

Treatment Time

10 – 20 minutes per treatment

Pretreatment Guidelines

Dr. Zuckerman recommends patients take the following precautions before undergoing tear trough rejuvenation to minimize bruising: no NSAIDs such aspirin or ibuprofen within a couple days before a day after, don’t drink alcohol to excess a day before and a day before, refraining from lying flat or working out within 2 hours after injection.

Tear Trough Rejuvenation Recovery, Difficulty, & Risks

See below for an estimate of how long your treatment result may last, recovery time if any, cost range, and more.

Downtime / Recovery

This treatment involves little to no downtime, and patients often return to work immediately after treatment. However, there may be slight bruising or swelling, which in some cases can least up to a week. More often, these post-treatment effects resolve within a few days. Dr. Zuckerman is also able to minimize bruising using his techniques and also by icing the affected area post treatment.

Required Level of Skill

Medium to high: Because this treatment involves injections deep into the tissues near the eyes, it is a more advanced injection technique. Dr. Zuckerman recommends you visit him or another board-certified physician who is an expert in this treatment and the anatomy of the face.

Level of Discomfort

Low to moderate: for this treatment, Dr. Zuckerman is injecting deep into the tissues, near the bone. He applies a topical anesthetic (numbing cream) before treatment to eliminate patient discomfort.

Associated Risks

This treatment is overwhelmingly safe in the hands of an expert injector like Dr. Zuckerman. However as noted above, it is a more advanced injection technique. Some risks in the hands of an inexperienced injector are:
• Swelling
• Bruising
• Lumps
